The first of its kind, Profhilo® is a revolutionary ‘beneath the skin’ hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment, made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. Unlike a filler, when injected into skin Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore firmness of the skin.
One of the highest concentrations of hyaluronic acid on the market, Profhilo not only boosts and hydrates the skin, but also remodels ageing and sagging tissue. The most common areas of treatment include the face and neck and can also be used for the décolletage, hands, arms, knees and abdomen area where it would effectively treat skin laxity. The treatment is suitable for men and women as well as offering skin benefits for patients of all ages.
Ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is precisely injected using a very fine needle into the area being treated. Unlike wrinkle reducing and dermal filler treatments, Profhilo stimulates collagen and elastin, attracting water in the deeper layers of the skin. There may be bumps and a slight stinging sensation on the skin at the injection site which usually subsides within 3 hours.
The Treatment Plan
For best results, two initial treatments are recommended, 4-6 weeks apart. Thereafter, the patient usually only needs to repeat the treatment once or twice a year to maintain the results. The treatment lasts between 6-9 months after the second “initial” treatment.
The Visible Results
Depending on severity of condition being treated and the skin type, the timeline for visibility of results can vary. However, the skin is usually noticeably improved within a week after the first treatment and clearer after the second treatment.
